New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 4.4
SynopsisThe remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version and configuration, the Cisco IOS XE Software for Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers with a 20-Gbps Embedded Services Processor (ESP) running on the remote device is affected by a denial of service vulnerability. An unauthenticated, adjacent attacker can exploit this by sending a malicious series of IP ARP messages to an affected device to exhaust system resources, which would eventually cause the affected device to reload.
